More big parcels for Hermes

Hermes is to increase its ability to collect and deliver large items (over 18 kilos), in response to demand from retailers.

As a result, the company is actively seeking independent van operators to join the firm as service partners in a push to increase the volume of larger items by 20 per cent.

The company uses a van network to deliver larger goods, and this is separate from its small package network.

Carl Lyon, operations director delivery experience, said: “Getting the right service partners on board is key for us as they must be committed to delivering an exceptional service, while ensuring that we continue to meet the ULEZ emissions standards as they are rolled out across the UK’s major cities.”
